In the postapocalyptic world torn by tyranny and barbarism, six brave heroes fight against the Prohibition imposed upon them. Deep in the catacombs, they built their own, small breweries – with extraordinary skill, love for detail, and a stark inventiveness, for which they have to thank their irrepressible will to survive. Well hidden from watching eyes, they tinker tirelessly on their excellent beer creations. For the “brave six” (as they are named by sympathizers), the beer brewery is more than just a factory.

It is a feeling of life. A touch of freedom. The only beam of light which they still have in these dark days. Each barrel of beer brings with it the danger of being discovered and having to live the rest of their lives in an office. But, with the firm goal of a revolution before their eyes, the “brave six” nevertheless are ready to fight in spite of the enormous risk for their dream. They thus file in and out of their brewery day in and day out in order to create the best beer specialties which this world has ever seen (and drunk).

Imperial Stout
Imperial Stout

The combination of fermentation aromas from selected culture yeast and roasted malt produces a caramel-malt and roasted taste. Thanks to its deep black color and its creamy crown of foam, the Imperial Stout of “The Master” is an eye-catcher among the specialties.

The Master

Imperial Stout is the personal specialty of the brewery elder.

Before prohibition, he introduced a prestigious institution in which young people could study the craft of beer brewing. He is known under the name “The Master.”

It was him, as well, who founded the bold society in order to fight against the imposed Prohibition. Since the master’s face was injured in an ambush, he hid this under a low-hanging hat. He wanted to avoid his hideous appearance being associated with the powerful, but very harmonic, taste of his Imperial Stout.

German Red
German Red

The powerful “German Red” bock beer captivates with its pleasant, malt-scented notes, as well as its interesting red color – thanks to selected and intensively dried types of malt. It is rounded out with a slight bitterness, which is as elegant as “The Stranger” himself.

The Stranger

Inspired by the bright red hair of his daughter, the father of the stranger is seen as the discoverer of the German Red Beer.

When Prohibition proper began, he didn’t want to concede without a fight, and hid the recipe in a secret place in the country to protect it against being discovered by others. The recipe for the unique taste and the secret for the powerful, bright red color of the beer remained lost for a long time.

Imperial IPA
Imperial IPA

Hopped three times and brewed with top-fermented ale yeast, as well as complexly produced malts, which ensure a red color and a powerful aroma, “The Sparks´” India Pale Ale convinces above all through the use of the yeast types Yellow Sub and Mosaic, which complement each other in their citrusy and flowery aromas.

The Spark

“The Spark,” as it is called on the street, has already seen a lot. 

At one time, he was “The Master’s” best student. But, when the young student established a beer creation that seemed improper to his teacher, he left the country in anger and traveled around the world. On his adventures, he learned a lot of new things, and regretted again and again that he no longer had contact with his old master, who was like a father to him.

Session IPA
Session IPA

The delicate but nevertheless aromatic body of the triple-hopped Session Pale Ale ensures a pleasant drinking experience. The exclusive hop variety “Vic Secret” surprises with exotic and tropical, fruity notes. The Steam Brew “Newcomer” of “The Sister” tastes the best when it is between 6 and 10 degrees Celsius.

The Sister

The little sister of “The Spark”: Shiny is back!

For not long at all, a mysterious, previously hidden combatant has made itself known. But it did not stay long in the city, as, just a few days ago, there was talk in the underground of a new beer creation, which has been creating a frenzy on the streets. “Shiny’s” IPA is clearly different from the stamp of the brave resistance brewer, but it nevertheless has the same goal: Revolution!

It is called “The Sister” as a camouflage and protective shield for itself and its mother. Trust and openness had already cost too many innocents their lives ...

The Farmer's

The bold "farmer" is a brewer as well as a harbinger of resistance!

For some time, the resistance has also been supported by the surrounding outlying districts. The most influential of the helpers is called “the farmer” in the city. He thus cultivates smaller wheat fields in large forest clearings – already large enough to supply the resistance breweries in the city and to be able to brew his own Wheat Pale Ale, endowed with three different sorts of malt. 

Without tiring, “the farmer” orders his fields anew and offers wheat seeds, because the Prohibition watch always has him on his toes. His small fields are always being discovered again and again, and the valuable raw materials fall into the flames as victim. Still the hardest part of his work, however, is the smuggling of his full-bodied beer specialty and the freshly harvested malt into the city. He thus has to do everything himself, because, until he reaches his goal, the small, underground brewery, he cannot trust anyone.

The "Snake"

The “Snake” has an exciting past and is endowed with useful talent.

As an orphan and raised without a homeland, “the Snake” spent her childhood in various underground gangs, which fought for their own existence rather than being part of the resistance movement. Petty theft and vandalism were the order of the day. The name is thanks to her cheeky temperament and her slim appearance. Her gangs sent her plundering in narrow shafts and through impassable holes. When her group got into an ambush by the state authority, it was “the Spark” who was able to save her at the last moment, and who offered her shelter.
